History of project idea:
This project was inspired by a project that we had already implemented which was about using commercial photography for youth entrepreneurship.
The specific need that our project intends to solve is unemployment of deaf youth. Concretely more than 43% of deaf youth that are unemployed in all participating countries (research done by Public national institution for employment).
- lack of info about possibilities for deaf youth using photography (research by Google, social networks)
- lack of working methods for improvement of deaf youth creative potentials, using photography methods
- currently there is no info that deaf youth can work as photographers
Idea is the use of eyesight as advantage of deaf youth over others. Idea is to work on strenght of deaf youth instead of weacknesses.
Hearing impairment has no effect on the quality of the product in the field of photography which gives deaf youth a more and new opportunities in entrepreneurship.
This project will focus on overcoming the problems that deaf youth have while trying to acquire employment and start their own entrepreneurship.
When our team started working on this project in 2018, we realized there was no other program focusing solely on education of deaf youth in the field of entrepreneurship with using photography and photography stock market.
Hence the project’s impact will be to become a pioneer in this field by providing deaf youth with easily available database of knowledge and a network where everyone can share accomplishments, ideas, information and experiences.
This newly built network will also serve as an incentive and example of successful working practices for future projects with the similar goal.
